right now, in ten.

i started this post inspired by soulemama, but before i could get all the pics taken i was also tagged my vanessa. they are sort of related so i'll just cheat and combine them!

my attempt at capturing our right now in ten words and photographs.










and 10 things that make me happy.
1. james and the way he loves me and eliza.
2. eliza and her smiles and laughs.
3. maggs and jude and their snuggles.
4. family and their support. especially when we're far.
5. friends and FIF. for keeping me laughing and always being there.
6. our church family. for being so kind and a break from the week.
7. our little town and the mayberry feeling.
8. coca-cola. i'm trying to cut down, and realizing how much i love that stuff.
9. me time. especially baths at night.
10. pictures. taking them, looking at them, printing them...

what are your ten?

just realized.

that the settings on my365 didn't allow open comments. i changed it. you don't have to be a member to comment. so let me know what you think!

eliza had her 4 month appointment yesterday. we won't get into how awful of a time we had. thank God for angel nurses! i'll just leave you with her stats...

14lbs even. 54.5% highest it's ever been.
24.5 inches long. 55.05% also the highest yet.
15.5 inches head circumference. 8.56% still a pin head!

eliza in the sky.

we had a warm day last friday so we got outside. took her on a wagon ride, swung on the porch swing, laid in the nice green grass. georgia clay.

it was just what i needed.

a bunch of my FIFs are doing project365 this year so i decided to try. i jumped in last march when i was in my photography class, but only made it a project31. we'll see how this year goes. you can find my pictures here, or on the link on the right.

happy day!

things she likes...
her hands. it was hard to get a picture of her with them not in her mouth!
chewing on anything.
sucking her thumb.
sophie. the teething giraffe.
standing up. with help of course.
sitting up. again, with help.
watching magglio.
sleeping, and finally taking naps!
watching other kids.
being naked. (we're hoping this changes)
rolling from her tummy to back.

i can't believe how much she is growing and learning. i read something about how in the 4th month they realize that they aren't actually a part of you. when you hold them they don't mold their body to yours. that made me so sad! she definitely acts more like a baby, and not a newborn. we've had many comments about that too!
this month brought...her first Christmas, first new year, wagon rides, playing with toys, rolling over, her first passport picture, and her 7th 10 hour ride in the car.

big news!

eliza rolled over yesterday! didn't quite catch it on video, but we'll be trying!

we also found out that we'll all be heading to korea (as long as it all goes through) for two years. crazy!

anything to be together...

and because i can't post without a pic here you go...

the bikini is a bit big, but enola gave it to her for Christmas. it was supposed to be for her to use while hanging out on the dock this summer. (when we thought james would be going to korea by himself) hopefully we'll get some use out of it, and hopefully we'll be on the dock together sometime!

i feel funny posting a pic of her in that when it's freezing! i know it's worse back home, but it's cold here in georgia!
